Short description of the exhibition

T he Chopin Museum provides a comprehensive presentation of the life and artistic endeavors of the Polish musical prodigy in a thorough and clear manner. The exhibition is categorized into three sections:

Ground Floor: Warsaw Era

First Floor: Parisian Phase

Basement: Frédéric Chopin’s role as a composer and pianist

A notable feature is the inclusion of Chopin’s Pleyel piano from his later years (First Floor). Furthermore, visitors have the opportunity to view various personal items of the pianist, including a golden watch presented to him by Angelika Catalani. The museum also offers the chance to experience Chopin’s compositions through designated music boxes (Ground Floor).

What particularly captivates us is the liberty to explore the museum in any sequence. Guests are free to navigate through the museum at their own pace.

We have endorsed the museum as one of Warsaw’s finest for a valid reason. Its contemporary design and provision of accurate, verified information about Chopin and Warsaw from the first half of the 19th century make it stand out.

The building of the museum

T he museum palace itself is truly captivating. Dating back to the latter half of the 17th century, the Ostrogski Palace stands out with a splendid terrace overlooking the Vistula Valley on its east side. Additionally, an elegant reception courtyard, adorned with a circular staircase, leads to the main entrance on the west side.

In the tumultuous times of World War II, the palace endured significant damage, but it underwent meticulous reconstruction according to the authentic designs crafted by Tilman van Gameren.
